Gun Showdown

 

There should be more games set in the old west, and that ladies and gentlemen is a fact. Think about it, it's a perfect setting for a game, mysterious lone strangers with an eye for adventure are practically a required ingredient for all good western...

The transfer to the PSP has seen Rebellion struggle with the perennial problem of how to replicate the duel analogue control system onto the limited PSP control layout. How successful they have been is a matter of opinion but they have made as good a...

GUN Showdown

 

There's no denying that GUN Showdown is an entertaining game, but you'll have to overcome the incredibly awkward controls in order to get any enjoyment from it.

Impressive presentation ; Nice additions to the PSP game

Pretty short ; Awkward controls

There's no denying that GUN Showdown is an entertaining game, but you'll have to overcome the incredibly awkward controls in order to get any enjoyment from it. GUN didn't quite live up to the hype last year, and the PSP version doesn't really add much...

GUN Showdown

 

Gunfire, ladies of the night and a murderous preacher: we got ourselves a western

The transition from console to handheld has been handled by Rebellion, who has seen fit to not just transport the desert grain pixel by pixel on to the small screen, but to also add in a fair few impressive tricks and flips of its own

GUN Showdown

 

Porting console titles onto the PSP is becoming a growing trend, with developer Neversoft being the latest to send their somewhat unique creation, a wild west-themed third person shooter, to the PSP. With developer Rebellion working on the port, the...

Gun Showdown Review

 

Welcome everybody to the Wild, Wild West! About two years ago, Activision released a sleeper hit on the console market world in the form of the game Gun. Set in ...

What can I say, Gun Showdown is one of those games that I want to love, but I just can’t bring myself to do it. The game is gorgeous and is a very faithful port of the console versions, but the control limitations of the PSP completely ruined the...

Gun Showdown Sony PSP Review

 

Great multiplayer games; terrific presentation brings the West to life; Quick Draw rocks

Controls take some getting used to due to the PSP format; main game's too short

GUN Showdown

 

Last year Activision and NeverSoft delivered a hot Wild West shooter by the name of GUN, and it would have been the easiest thing in the world to just straight-port the game to the PSP to make a quick buck. But that's not what happened, thanks to some...

Nice set of PSP-exclusive modes ; Story has been spiffed up, and the voice acting is still solid

Man, that control scheme just is a wet blanket on the whole affair ; Some FMV and other in-game graphics are a bit rough

If you already own it or didn’t like the game before, this won’t convert you; but aside from an awkward control system, it’s hard not to appreciate the effort that went into making GUN Showdown more than just a straight port. Worth considering for...

Gun: Showdown

 

I really wanted to give this game higher marks, but I didn't. I might be making a huge complaint out of something that might not even bother you, but I really could not stand Gun: Showdown's controls. Using the buttons as a directional control is awful...

Gun Showdown

 

Live by the gun and have some fun in this solid port of Activision's Wild West shooter.

Generally fun quest; rewarding side quests; fast and breezy; good graphics

Multiplayer an afterthought; controls a bit wonky; barren world

Gun Showdown

 

Lately it seems like a lot of companies are devoting time and money to porting their big budget console games to Sony's PlayStation Portable. Games like The Godfather and From Russia With Love are released on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox, and then months...

Gun Showdown could have been a disastrous port of a so-so action game, but it ends up being a surprisingly solid game full of fun missions, crazy firefights and some cool extra goodies.
